Reviews forCheddar Chicken Spirals
"This is a delicious meal. I added Italian seasoning to the chicken when I sauted it to give it an even deeper level of seasoning. It was a big hit."
"This really is great! Very easy to make. I didn't have quite enough cheddar cheese so I used a mixed blend I had as well (mozzarella, provolone, asiago, parmesan and romano cheeses). I think the combination of all the cheeses made it even better. This time I cooked some fresh carrots in the same water as the pasta and added those as well since I didn't have as many frozen vegetables as I wanted. I usually put this together and then stick it in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. It's delicious!"
"This was a hit in our house, too. And so easy."
